05 Feb WithersRavenel in AWWA-WEA’s NC Currents Magazine Winter 2017/18 Issue
In the Winter 2017/18 issue of NC Currents, a quarterly publication by the North Carolina American Water Works Association & North Carolina Water Environment Association, WithersRavenel shares its perspective on geomatic assessment in an article entitled “GIS Doesn’t Mean ‘Get It Surveyed.'” We explain what Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can and can’t do, and how governments and private interests can leverage the tremendous power of GIS to make better decisions about their assets. We also share a glimpse into the future of GIS to connect information about many different kinds of infrastructure to create an even more robust resource for monitoring asset life cycles, predicting future needs, and understanding the impact of new materials or innovative methods on system performance.
